Der Briefwechsel by Uwe Johnson( Book )

Einen feierlichen Ton wählt Siegfried Unseld im Eingangssatz seines ersten Briefs an Peter Handke: "ich freue mich, Ihnen mitteilen zu können, daß wir nach genauer Lektüre Ihres Manuskriptes uns entschieden haben, Ihre Arbeit in den Suhrkamp Verlag zu übernehmen." Mit diesem Schreiben vom August 1965 setzt eine Korrespondenz ein, in der nach annähernd 600 Briefen Peter Handke dem Verleger zum 75. Geburtstag gratuliert: "Du bist und warst wie selten einer zum stillen, wohltätigen Dasein und Mitgehen (und Vorausschwimmen) fähig." Über einen Zeitraum von mehr als 35 Jahren besprachen Peter Handke und Siegfried Unseld das ihnen Wichtigste schriftlich: die Literatur, die Bücher, unterrichtete der Autor den Verleger von seinen Vorhaben, hielt Unseld schriftlich seine Eindrücke über die neuen Manuskripte fest, diskutierten beide Erscheinungstermin und Ausstattung von Büchern, Publikationsstrategien und Kritikerrezensionen. Am Leitfaden der intensiven Arbeit an und für Literatur eröffnet dieser Briefwechsel völlig neue Einsichten in die Bedingungen des Schreibens und der Verbreitung von Büchern, zeichnet die intellektuelle Biographie beider Korrespondenten, ihr unablässiges Arbeiten an neuen Ausdrucksformen sowie deren materiellen, geographischen, politischen und persönlichen Begleitumstände. Konflikte zwischen beiden sind unausweichlich; ebenso unausweichlich ist es, daß sie beigelegt werden, denn für Peter Handke wie für Siegfried Unseld gilt: allein die Literatur schafft Möglichkeiten eines freien Lebens, in dem Phasen des Glücks vorherrschen können
Statt Bernhard : über Misanthropie im Werk Thomas Bernhards( Book )

Concrete by Thomas Bernhard( Book )

11 editions published in 2006 in German and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Instead of the book he's meant to write, Rudolph, a Viennese musicologist, produces this dark and grotesquely funny account of small woes writ large, of profound horrors detailed and rehearsed to the point of distraction. We learn of Rudolph's sister, whose help he invites, then reviles as malevolent meddling; his 'really marvelous' house, which he hates; the suspicious illness he carefully nurses; his ten-year-long attempt to write the perfect opening sentence; and, finally, his escape to the island of Majorca, which turns out to be the site of someone else's very real horror story. A brilliant and haunting tale of procrastination, failure, and despair, Concrete is a perfect example of why Thomas Bernhard is remembered as "one of the masters of contemporary European fiction" (George Steiner)

Early one morning a doctor sets out with his son on his daily rounds through the forbidding moutainouse countryside. Their visits, a succession of grotesque portraits- a diabetic industrialist living in incestuous isolation with his half-sister; three brothers, occupying a mill set in a deep gorge, who have just strangled a bevy of exotic birds; a crippled musical prodigy whose sister locks him in a cage- lead them to a castle and a paranoid prince, whose 'almost uninterrupted monologue for a hundred pages is a virtuoso verbal performance ... an extraordinary, somber first novel

Woodcutters by Thomas Bernhard( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in German and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fiercely observed, often hilarious, and "reminiscent of Ibsen and Strindberg" (The New York Times Book Review), this exquisitely controversial novel was initially banned in its author's homeland. A searing portrayal of Vienna's bourgeoisie, it begins with the arrival of an unnamed writer at an 'artistic dinner' hosted by a composer and his society wife'a couple he once admired and has come to loathe. The guest of honor, a distinguished actor from the Burgtheater, is late. As the other guests wait impatiently, they are seen through the critical eye of the writer, who narrates a silent but frenzied tirade against these former friends, most of whom have been brought together by Joana, a woman they buried earlier that day. Reflections on Joana's life and suicide are mixed with these denunciations until the famous actor arrives, bringing an explosive end to the evening that even the writer could not have seen coming

The project of writing a social history of literature is generally held to have exhausted its potential. Yet the general practice of literary studies still encompasses socio-historical issues like the relationship between literary texts and their social environment, studies on the distribution of literature, questions pertaining to the historical and social status of authors and readers. The articles in this volume essay a stock-taking of the (now historical) paradigm 'social history of literature' and by engaging critically with approaches from cultural studies and media theory outline new co
